        Painting metal trim Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Hi. I have gold metal trim on my bathroom sliding shower door that I wanted to paint white. How do I do that? What type of paint? Do I need to prime anything before etc. whatever paint i use i assume will need to be able to withstand water since its being used for the shower..I've never done a DIY project before..
        Thank you!

        Scuff the surface with a fine steel wool, wipe clean, mask everything off and spray with a good quality spray paint. It will hold up fine to water but any painted metal surface like shower door trim will be susceptible to scratching.
